"Breaking Dawn" Grosses $508 Million In 12 Days

Despite reports of seizures being experienced by film-goers during a 'birthing' sequence, Summit Entertainment's British Columbia-lensed "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1" has grossed $508 million in global box office in only 12 days since the film's release, November 18, 2011.

"We couldn't be more pleased with the success of this film and a franchise that the fans have continued to support over the past several years." said Summit's Co-Chairmen Rob Friedman and Patrick Wachsberger. "Thank you to all involved with the films from the actors, filmmakers and Stephenie Meyer to the most important group of all, the global fan base that continues to drive a desire for more 'Edward', 'Jacob' and 'Bella'."

The next movie chapter, "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2" will be released to theatres, November 16, 2012.

Oscar winner Bill Condon directed both the first and second part of the two-part finale starring Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner.

The project, based on the fourth novel in author Stephenie Meyer's "Twilight" series, was written by Melissa Rosenberg with Wyck Godfrey, Karen Rosenfelt and Stephenie Meyer producing.
